EESI gives the most balanced, useful, complete and relevant information on topics concerning the environment and energy. I use their fact sheets and white papers all the time for my work within these fields. EESI is the Go To organization.
EESI is one of the organizations devoted to the environment and energy issues that is very careful not to make the information they present partisan or inject politics into its information. The organization does not demonize but focuses on expertise for how to make changes without affecting affordability and reliability. I read their material, attend their briefings relatively often and have changed my conclusions and deepened my understanding as the result of their work. They are one of the few "adults" in this particular policy space. Their budget is modest and carefully administered but they have an impact on informing public policy that far exceeds their size. I have watched them work for many years and their consistency of focus on their mission has not changed.
EESI is my go-to source for environmental and energy updates, information, and opportunities. It is the most comprehensive weekly coverage, as well as totally reliable and in-depth analysis, covering government (White House, agencies, Congress, and courts), private, and nonprofit sectors, as well as partnerships among the sectors.
Reading Climate Change News is the first thing on my Monday morning "to do" list. Since its inception, it's done much to inform my thinking on climate change and development of materials for a class I teach on Energy Technology and Policy. My primary interests relate to energy and environmental sustainability (se2.nd.edu).
They only do impactful work, making it a MUST-READ. Plus, they tell me what's coming out of Washington that's useful and important.
EESI stays on top of most new information coming out on climate change. It's an extremely useful oversight tool for keeping up with the latest findings.
I have attended several of EESI's briefings. Each had highly qualified presenters active in the particular subject space. Sometimes I knew most of what was being presented and sometimes I learned a lot. Sometimes I wished other experts could have been included. For those not specialized in the subject area, I am sure they would always come out with valuable information.
I am a retired environmental specialist with a federal agency. I am helping a retired expert on social impacts of energy projects write a book on her career. We both worked with impacts of climate change. EESI has long been a reliable source of information, and Climate Change News is a convenient way to keep up to date.
The quality of content produced by EESI is unmatched. Their briefings on Capitol Hill are phenomenal, their factsheets and newsletters are incredibly informative, and the genuine passion of their staff is infectious. Carol Werner is known throughout the industry as one of the most knowledgeable, well-respected, and undeniably-empathetic leaders within the environmental and energy community and her initiative has yielded an organization with the prodigious ability to enact positive change for present and future generations alike. There are many problems in this field that the world will have to face for years to come, but its organizations like EESI that restore my faith in our ability to meet these challenges head-on.
As a news-and-discussion-network admin focused on caring for people and planet, EESI's dedication to research and fairness makes it a primary resource. I usually share more than one post from EESI every week, and these shares are among our most liked and re-shared.
For years I have relied on the EESI weekly Clmate News summary as the most useful on the subject. It helps me keep up with news on research, planning and negotiations as well as legislation and policy initiatives in the field.
EESI occupies a unique position, contributing to Congress's work but also talking to general public and other interests. Working in a somewhat similar organization, I judge their work to be excellent, and sometimes unmatched, which is why I have contributed to supporting them for years.
